Girls Trip, the new comedy from director/producer MALCOLM D. LEE (The Best Man franchise, Barbershop: The Next Cut) and producer WILL PACKER (Ride Along and Think Like a Man franchises) follows four lifelong friends––Ryan, Dina, Lisa and Sasha—as they travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival, where sisterhoods are rekindled, wild sides are rediscovered and there’s enough dancing, drinking, brawling and romancing to make The Big Easy blush.
The actress appreciated her big break, and she dove into her character. Describing the down-on-her-luck but never-out-of-the-game Dina as “a firecracker,” she offers: “Dina is in a place where she just wants to have a good time. She’s stressed out, and she just lost her job. She hasn’t told anyone yet but when it comes to releasing some stress, she’s down for that. This is her chance to forget about what’s going on in the real world, and to be with her friends who always make her happy. She doesn’t have to think about how these bills are going to be paid.” Haddish has the best response for why the group is known as the “Flossy Posse.” In her signature style, she laughs: “They were all in college, looking good, flossing on these hoes and staying fresh. The girls had the best dance moves, best hairdos and outfits. They were flossy, and they were a posse—like apostles. That’s where the word ‘posse’ comes from, because the apostles kicked it with Jesus.” She pauses, “Who knows? Dina might be the Jesus of this group! That’s why. Flossy Posse.”
